SANFORD, Fla. — George Zimmerman’s legal defense team said Tuesday it would hold off for “a couple of weeks” filing a motion for a second bond motion for its defendant in the Trayvon Martin shooting case.

The delay announcement comes a day after defense attorney Mark O’Mara acknowledged on his case’s website that Zimmerman misled a Sanford, Fla., court about his finances but vowed he would seek a new bond hearing based on his client being “forthright and cooperative” in all other aspects.

No reason was immediately given for the delay, but O’Mara said he would file a motion “well in advance of the hearing.”

Zimmerman’s next bail hearing has not been set yet, but his legal defense team said it was not expected for a couple of weeks.
